Laine Daniels was born Daniel Nathan Laine on January 20, in a small southern Illinois town named Highland, Illinois. Laine Daniels was brought up around generations of family members that loved music including, his grandmother that played in a family band, his father that played the harmonica, and his mother that listened to a variety of music styles. At the young age of 10 months, his grandmother taught him how to sing, "By By Love" by the Everley Brothers.
Laine Daniels always had an eclectic taste in music, but Country music was what he loved to perform. When he was a little boy he would save his allowance to buy Country records at the corner store. He would bring the Country records home to share and perform the songs for his family and friends.
When Laine Daniels was 19 years old he joined The Shari Lynn Show, a well known Country Western Chicago band, at a club called, "Daddy Franks". The band gave great opportunities to work with local musicians from the Chicago area. The Shari Lynn Show fronted stars such as, Barbara Mandrell, Tom T. Hall and Doug Kershaw.
After leaving The Shari Lynn Show, Laine Daniels sang intermittently with another band that was managed by his sister Donita Crenshaw (now the EAS Band). In the 1970's and 1980's. the band toured all around the Illinois area playing at various bars and clubs. After touring with the band, Laine Daniel decided to take a step back from performing to concentrate on his family.
After being away from performing, Laine Daniels made the decision to return to what he really loved to do. With the strong support from close family and friends, his sister and now manager, Lorrieann, contacted a great producer in June 2010 out of Nashville by the name of Mark Dreyer. Mark Dreyer has co-written songs with Country greats such as Hank Cochran, Dave Gibson, Ken Mellons, Don Goodman, Adam Hughes, Danny Simpson and Red Lane. In July 2010, Mark Dreyer provided some great songs and encouraged Laine Daniels and his manager Lorrieann, to write some original songs of their own. "I feel honored to be working with Mark, a great producer and musician" says Laine Daniel. An original Christmas song written by the team entitled " A Country Christmas" was then set to debut, December 2010 at Donely's Steak House in Union, IL.
Since then, Laine Daniels put together another original CD named, "Out Going Male", which has his new first released song named, "Wasn't that you".
Laine Daniels is on his way to stardom and everyone that loves Country Music will surely enjoy listening to this new talented performer and Country singer.
